Office of Chief Technologist Roles/Responsibilitie
s
  • Six main goals and responsibilities
  • Principal NASA advisor and advocate on
    Agency-wide technology policy and programs.
  • Up and out advocacy for NASA research and
    technology programs. Communication and
    integration with other Agency technology efforts.
  • Direct management of Space Technology program.
  • Coordination of technology investments across the
    Agency, including the mission-focused investments
    made by the NASA mission directorates. Perform
    strategic technology integration.
  • Change culture towards creativity and innovation
    at NASA Centers, particularly in regard to
    workforce development.
  • Document/demonstrate/communicate societal impacts
    of NASA technology investments. Lead technology
    transfer and commercialization opportunities
    across Agency.
  • Mission Directorates continue to manage
    mission-focused technology for directorate
    missions and future needs

FY 2011 Presidents Budget Exploration Overview
  • Challenges NASA to embark on a new human space
    exploration program that focus on
  • Obtaining key knowledge about future destinations
  • Demonstrating critical enabling technologies for
    human spaceflight
  • Six Internal Study Teams Established
  • Exploration Robotic Precursors
  • Flagship Technology Demonstration
  • Enabling Technology Development and Demonstration
  • Heavy Lift and Propulsion Technology
  • Commercial Crew
  • Human Research
  • Mars as the ultimate destination is typically
    their driving case
  • MEP has been engaged with the Exploration Robotic
    Precursor teams, helping them with understanding
    the scope and depth of 2004-05 Safe on Mars
    roadmapping efforts.
  • Goal IV becomes is extremely relevantagain

13
Most MEP-Relevant New Exploration Technology
